Spanning painting, sculpture, installation, ceramic, photography, and new multimedia, Pace's booth will display an array of work by some of the most exciting international artists working today.

The presentation will include paintings by Robert Longo and Qiu Xiaofei who are both having solo exhibitions at Pace in New York, a new painting by Mary Corse who is having her new exhibition at Pace in Palo Alto, and photography works by Nina Katchadourian who is going to present her first solo exhibition in China at Pace in Hong Kong. Likewise, the booth will show works by Louise Nevelson, Joel Shapiro, and Yin Xiuzhen, whose works are also shown at Pace's group exhibition in Geneva.

In addition, the booth will feature an installation by James Turrell, who is a representative figure of Light and Space Movement, a mixed media painting by Kohei Nawa and a new installation by Studio Swine. Silent Fall, a significant installation by Studio Swine will be unveiled on 12th November in Superblue London. As a new project launched by Pace in 2020, Superblue is dedicated to bring the experimental concept of art and the extensive experience to the greater public. A sculptural work from the Wave series by Maya Lin will also be presented, whose Ghost Forest is now being shown at Fotografiska New York.

The Jugglers, the most representative multiscreen installation by David Hockney will be first shown in China at Landscape Imagery which is curated by BMW Group alongside a presentation of the BMW Art Car designed by Hockney in 1995. Current events in Shanghai during the West Bund fair are: Beatriz Milhazes: Ballet em Diagonais at the Long Museum, and Marina Perez Simão: Observatory at the Sifang Museum, both events celebrate the first solo exhibition for both artists in China,

 

Featured Works

Mary Corse, Untitled (White with Narrow Black Band, Beveled), 2021, glass microspheres in acrylic on canvas, 7' × 54" (213.4 cm × 137.2 cm)

Mary Corse

Over the last five decades, Mary Corse has investigated perception, properties of light, and ideas of abstraction in her practice. Her pioneering approach to painting explores the medium’s capacity to utilize and refract light through subtly gestural and precisely geometric works. For the artist, the essence of painting addresses underlying structures of visual experiences and their position within space and time. Corse often emphasizes that her paintings are “not on the wall,” but instead suspended in a visual relationship between viewer and canvas. Corse has pursued an interest in perception since the late 1960s, when she began incorporating glass microspheres— an industrial material used to enhance pavement markings—into the surfaces of her paintings. This element, present in Untitled (White with Narrow Black Band, Beveled) (2021) reflects and refracts light depending on the viewer’s position relative to the optically rich surface.

Joel Shapiro

Arlene Shechet, Inhaled a Blue Moon, 2020, painted hardwood, powder coated steel and silver leaf, 80" × 28" × 19" (203.2 cm × 71.1 cm × 48.3 cm)

Arlene Shechet

Inhaled a Blue Moon (2020), a new work by the multidisciplinary sculptor Arlene Shechet, exemplifies the artist’s intense interest in madcap abstractions and unexpected material combinations. The small-scale sculpture incorporates painted hardwood, powered coated steel, and silver leaf creating distinct and idiosyncratic components, lively textural interactions and contrasts, and organic forms. Inhaled a Blue Moon is an amalgam of textures, featuring sleek and smooth steel, rough hardwood, and more. As such, the sculpture aligns with Shechet’s ongoing explorations of materiality within her practice. Like much of the artist’s work, Ever Given reveals itself to viewers as they navigate it from all sides, taking in its varied niches, crevices, and angles. Seen from different perspectives, the work shapeshifts and transforms before viewers’ eyes.

Nina Katchadourian, The Joy of Sex, from the series Noguchi, (“Sorted Books” project, 1993 and ongoing), 2021, c-print, framed, 13-5/8" × 20-1/8"

Nina Katchadourian

Nina Katchadourian on the Noguchi (2021) series from her “Sorted Books” project (1993–): “My first book sorting took place in 1993, the result of an open-ended experiment with a group of student friends, where we lived together in a house for a week and made art with only what we found there. My process hasn’t changed much since then: I start by sorting through a collection of books, selecting particular titles and arranging them into stacked groups so that their titles on the spines can be read in sequence as short sentences, phrases, or narratives. I’ve made many ‘Sorted Books’ works in libraries and personal book collections over the years, and since each one yields something distinctly different, I’m still adding to it 28 years later. The newest instalment, Noguchi, is my response to The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum’s invitation to work with the sculptor’s personal book collection. Noguchi’s books are split between his two former homes, one in Long Island City, New York, and the other in Mure, Japan. The titles in his library reflect his friendships with Marcel Duchamp and Buckminster Fuller, among others, and the many places his imagination and curiosity took him. Beat poetry, philosophy, Japanese craft traditions, ancient Greek art, and contemporaneous paperbacks on health and fitness all share space on his shelves.”
